I still remember what it was like when I saw it for the first time.
It was a screaming yellow color, with sleek lines that made it look like it was going 100 mph even while it was standing still. The paint was glossy. No speck of dust marred the interior. I couldn’t believe I was going to get to sit in it, much less drive it.
After all, I’ve never driven a Lamborghini before, much less taken one around a race track and through an obstacle course.
It didn’t disappoint.
With a professional driver by my side, my little charger and I went for a spin. The car was like a living animal, a sensitive soul that seemed eager to leap forward or stop when I merely thought about it. My mouth got dry when we navigated the cones, trying to look ahead and anticipate the line. And I thought my heart would stop when I was on the race track, not only allowed but urged to step on the accelerator and let her fly.
I got flustered and turned on the windshield wipers once when I wanted to shift. I laughed aloud several times. It was a little scary and overwhelming, and a lot exciting and fun. And I’ll never forget it.
